Day trip: Hirsiniemi Mountainbike Tour

On this tour, we examine the best Livojärvi area has to offer. The ride starts off from a parking place in the middle of Livojärvi giving you a great view of the vastness of the lake. First kilometers consists of easy gravel service road, which gradually turns smaller and smaller until we're on a wide flowy trail that takes you up, down and around the hilly ridge cape for some ten kilometers. Every once in a while there's an open lean-to shelter where we'll stop for a break.
After the breaks and some more great trails, it's time to cross the lake strait to Livohka. Except, this one we'll cross by a rowing boat, two persons and bikes at a time! Once we've reached Livohka, it's time for a tasty half way lunch.
After the lunch we'll head back -depending on the riders' motivation and technical abilities we'll either take the northern or southern shore of the lake and Hirsiniemi cape. Even if we'd take the southern approach, we would hardly have to travel on the same trails - there are so much of them to choose from!

Day trip: Loukusa Mountain Bike Tour

Loukusa is an old countryside village located on yet another ridge section passing through various lakes, the biggest of which is Loukusanjärvi. These ever- so-wonderful narrow and steep ridges are less-travelled than some others, which means our bikes will be in their element there!
The ride starts off from close to the Loukusa village, and first we'll go check the remains of an old combined bridge and dam, which once served the forest industry by the means of water regulation for timber rafting. From there, our route will take us along the beautiful ridges between the lakes and hills to the middle of Loukusanjärvi until we have to turn back - unless you want to take a swim, of course! We'll make sure you can enjoy the marvelous sceneries and also stop for a combined ”snacks-and views-break” during the ride, naturally.
A couple of kilometers from the Loukusa village, our ride finishes on an old ranch farm, the very ranch the hotel owner Mr. Kuukasjärvi himself grew up at! There'll be and old-timer classic Finnish countryside sauna waiting for us, and after the sauna Mr. Kuukasjärvi will serve us a tasty dinner in local Loukusa style. After the dinner, we'll head back to the hotel. Or, optionally, we could stay overnight and continue our adventure to other trails the very next day!
